Am a big fan of Deschutes crews--theyíve been so good for so long and continue to brew new and excellent ales. They tried to make this place feel mountain lodge-y but such a big room so full and noisy. Only thieir own beers but they cover such a range with consistent high quality thereís a lot to like. Higher range pub grub (& the price to go with it.) Friendly and informed staff.

Itís nice to finally have a Deschutes brewpub in Portland, so that itís a little bit easier to get all their tap only releases since I donít really have much occasion to go to Bend. As has been pointed out previously, itís very evident that a lot of time and money went into the atmosphere of this pub, the building itself is beautiful and actually has a fairly cozy feel relative to its size. The vast variety of tap only selections is really nice, with some stuff I sampled here including Super Jubel, Maple Gold, Crystal Peak Porter and the always delicious Hop Henge. Sadly, the service is fairly subpar, it took quite some time to get our beers when I was in there, and there was a mixup on one of the orders. This could very well be due to how busy it was on a sunday afternoon though, so Iíll cut them a little slack.

In a word, stunning. A virtual Oregon Beer Museum. I would give a 10 for ambiance if I could. Whether you are a local or a visitor, this should absolutely be on your must-visit list. First let me cut to the chase: this is more about the place and less about the beer. I was torn on what to rate them for selection because, well, itís all Deschutes. Which is fine, but I thought they might have more of their specialty stuff lying around. They had probably 12 taps. They did have their new (very highly rated) XX Porter flowing. That was a real treat. But not even a drop double IPA, which would have been nice. Everything else was pretty standard, but good. Bottom line: you need to come here and just SEE it. Amazing. Also, the food was some of the best pub grub Iíve ever had and prices were quite reasonable, unlike say Pike Brewery in Seattle. Probably one of the best Reuben sandwiches Iíve ever had, and Iím a freak for Reubens. Service was OK, but not special. Because the place is so big, it has a big staff and does high volumes. So my guess is it will be hard to get really good personalized service, especially if you want to get any juicy tidbits of info about the beers. One of the quirky things hereóIím curious to see how long this lastsóis a small copper chute that comes out of the wall about 9í above the back bar. Its purpose? You are supposed to throw tip money at it (coins). If you hit the chute, it funnels down and comes back out into a spittoon, the bar tip jar. I saw people throw coins from 20í away. Itís all fun until someone loses an eye.

Awesome stop in portland. Typical brewpub but more polished and with a sweet copper brewing facility within. Most of their food incorporates their beer in some form or fashion. All their beers in tap and a couple bonus ones that are unique to the brewpub.

The only "drag" on the atmosphere here is that it can get extremely packed at night. It almost doesnít matter the night, there will generally be a good sized crowd at deschutes after 7pm. Even with the crowds that will happen, Deschutes is well worth going to. They have a good amount of their own taps available at any time. It is usually never a problem getting a hold of a bartender when needed. The food is very good. You can get a lot of different things off their food menu and Iíve yet to have something bad. Deschutes is pretty much in my do-not-miss places when Iím in Portland.

Enormous brewpub, that still seems to be packed with people most of the time. Thereís a kind of an American cabin feel to the interior, that is still very slick and refined. Has a nice range of taps and bottles, but nothing too surprising or extraordinary. Food is quite good. Service is ok, but mostly makes one feel as yet a number in the never ending line. Not one of the musts in PDX, but by no means a place to avoid. Decent value.

I went here twice while visiting Portland twice. It has that standard restaurant-oriented brewpub feel, but the beer far surpasses any Rock Bottom Iíve tried. Still this is a weaker spot in Portland. This would be the shining pride of any normal town, but Portlandís awesomeness subsides some of theirs. They have a lot of beers, but only about half are worth anything. This is just another place you have to check out in Portland.

The Portland Deschutes Pub is beautiful, they spent a lot of money on this place and so far have been rewarded with a wait every night Iíve tried to go. The main downside here is parking, itís the Pearl and as such you must park at least 32 miles away from your destination, despite that itís a great place. They have all the usuals on tap and usually something interesting as well, last time I was in they had the new 2009 release of Mirror Mirror and a 2005 release, it was fun to compare the two. The service is, well, hard to rate. Sometimes I get a great waiter that is attentive and friendly, other times they are surly and donít actually wait on you. Last time I was in the bar I waited 25 minutes for the waiter to come back to me after I told him I wanted something, he never showed so I paid my tab and left. I was going to buy several bottles and order a keg, oh well.
